My boy is shedding his torso and it’s bath time should I wait until he is done? I have read conflicting stories. Help
They are dry-shedders. Let him do his thing.

I used to feel sad that my guy was uncomfortable shedding, and put him in a bath. I was probably inadvertently prolonging the shed.

These guys are pretty stellar when they need to shed. That being said, some bumpy, not too sharp surfaces are helpful.

I have a camera in my viv, and I see my guy rubbing his face and body on his basking surfaces during shed, and he has done great.

So should I not mist him either

I wouldn't. Just keep an eye on him, and you will be amazed that his shed starts to split, and sometimes looks like wings. Your guy will be okay.

Please post some pics of the shed!

My daughter saved my guy's hand shed (looks like a glove) and put it in a resin Keychain for me for my bday. The way they shed, is crazy.

I just set Swordtail's timer for his bath and paused it so I could actually fill his soaking bowl up and he crawled over my phone and canceled the timer 🤣
